Fairwinds Golf Club
Long Time since I played this course.
I have not played this course for probably 10 years. I would say it was in better shape now than at times in the past. It meanders around a subdivision of very big beautiful houses, some of which have great salt water views. They are not as intrusive as other courses though as they are elevated to the fairways. There is quite a distance between some greens and the next tees and some elevation differences. This makes for some good air as you hit off some of the tees, so it is fun. A mature course so there are lots of beautiful trees and water. All in all another good day playing golf.

Loved this course and the challenges
Course was in very good shape. Greens played very well and the fairways were in fair shape, though there were a lot of divots not being filled by golfers?

One of my favorite courses
Fairwinds offers a pleasant and challenging variety of shots, from long and straight, to dog-legs, to elevation changes and water hazards. There is never a dull moment at this picturesque course, where deer are in such abundance that one may have to shoo some out of your way.
The food at the clubhouse is exceptional and the pro-shop is well stocked.

Every hole is different
They have done a lot of drainage work to the course which makes it very nice even in some damp weather. Each hole is different and fun to play. Greens in great condition, lots of wildlife to enjoy during your round. Recommended.

Some nice golf holes.
Good value, nice course. It was in good shape, the greens were average speed, the fairways okay. The blue tees were my choice as the whites are relatively short.

Course in great condition. Greens were smooth and fairly quick, yet just soft enough to allow some spin.
It was my first time playing this course and I walked. Its quite undulating and a difficult walk in the heat (30c). A few holes are very difficult for walkers, especially between 15 green & 16 tee, where you have to walk p a long winding path to hit your tee shot and then walk back down and past the green where you just played. Does nothing to help the pace of play!

Our favourite course on Vancouver .Island.
My wife scored a hole-in-one on hole #6 which made it even more special. She used a 6 hybrid and her birthday is on Sept. 6. Perfect weather, perfect scenery, perfect day.
